We are not yarn snobs at all. We can make and source top quality yarns and fibres. We can create beautiful yarns from fleece and we can dye them how we want them to look. If we see something , though, which is cheap and cheerful, we don’t walk by because it is cheap. Some of the colour combinations in cheap yarns can be very striking. That’s what we value . We like interesting colour combinations and stand out colourways. Hilary’s beanie and fingerless gloves are totally eye catching. The colours draw immediate attention and then you want to look at how the colour shapes itself into patterns.
She wasn’t worried the yarn had only cost her $2 while she was away. She was pleased to tell us. Not everyone has money. We want people to know you can have fun creating no matter what and it’s the creativity and colour we are very passionate about. We think everyone should have as much fun as we do with yarn.
The Dale and Dolly comic strips can sum up some of our feelings about yarn.
